Riots? ~ Baby Turkeys ~ Shopping ~ Quiche ~ Marion ~ Del ~ Starbucks Caramel Coffee

Good 50ยบ clean sunny morning.

Now with the news of Zimmerman being acquitted the idiots will cause chaos  ....



On a much more upbeat note.....
I was heading out yesterday to do some shopping and pick up the clock I had repaired... two momma turkeys and their babies were down by the gate..
They get all panicky ... the babies went through the fence and the moms flew over....


The clock shop was closed... a note on the door said, "If you don't want us dead, we take Saturdays off" . Hmmm... weird..

So I went to Safeway....

Exciting day... came home unloaded groceries and vacuumed. There was a message on my phone from Rufus and Maxi. They were in the area and wanted to stop by. We had a chat and a beer. Nice. I cooked chicken thighs for Maggie, baked a quiche for my dinner (Costco quiche), topped it with sour cream and Parmesan cheese... good!!

Today would have been my sister Marion's birthday. She is so missed. She passed away from leukemia in 2004. Here is a picture of her .... 1954 .. with her two BFF's...l-r Georgia, Judy, and Marion... three lettergirls!
... and Marion holding me...

Today is also a special birthday.. .Del Albright. Del and Jerry were in the Army National Guard together... he and his Stacie live in California. His brother Dale, is a doctor here in Grants Pass at Three Rivers. HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEL!
Del is... "Off-Road Sports and Lands Access Ambassador at BlueRibbon Coalition and Retired Fire Chief; Old Soldier; Enthusiastic Outdoor Photojournalist."  Way to go Del!!! xo
